The Orissa State Cooperative Milk Producers Federation (OMFED) on Saturday signed an agreement with National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) for setting up a modern five lakh-litre capacity dairy plant in the state.

"The milk processing capacity of OMFED will be enhanced from the present level of 6.4 lakh litres per day to 12 lakh litres per day," said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, who was present on the occasion.

Besides, two new products -- Vitamin Fortified Milk and Cow Milk -- were also launched on Saturday by OMFED for overall benefit of over 4 lakh dairy farmers and lakhs of consumers in the state.

Due to persistent and novel initiatives undertaken by the state government in the animal resource sector, the milk production in the state had increased from 45 lakh litres per day in 2009-10 to 56 lakh litres per day in 2017-18, the Chief Minister said.
